Last year we trialled an ‘overflow’ in the Boys’ Sunday School so that, once the church is full, anyone else is directed to a comfortable seat and a chance to join in the service. The full sound of the service is relayed over and a board set up to replicate the names of those on the War Memorial, along with images shown on a screen during the service. We join in exactly the same service – and the same sense of reverence and quiet is kept – along with hearty joining in of the hymns, prayers and responses.
If you haven’t been to this service for a while because you’ve struggled to find a seat, why not try this year? You may even prefer to opt for the Sunday School - the padded seats, more elbow room and heating!
Once the church is full, everyone else will be directed across to the Sunday School.
